I really, really wanted to love this book but my feelings are lukewarm as best.
Super rich tech dude builds an immersive fantasy theme park (think LARPing on steroids) but his employees on the island go rogue. Classic lit professor Addie Cox is sent in with private contractors to take it back. Considering how smart and into D&D she is, Addie makes some brainless choices at the worst possible times. Freaking unicorns.

I loved this book-the writing is ok, super cool story & the world building was great!
An island in the style of Jurassic Park, but for fantasy lovers, has been taken over in what the billionaire owner calls a coup. Can a team of highly trained mercenaries and a PhD in comparative literature survive the fantastic creatures, deadly puzzles, & totally immersed workers to open the island again?
4/5 stars, I was this island to be real!

Maid Marian: A Novel | Elsa Watson

A historical novel about Norman lady Marian Fitzwater who schemes to meet Saxon folk hero Robin Hood to enlist his help in escaping an unwanted marriage and recovering her rightful lands. Marian longs to escape the drudgery of needlework, of fieldwork and to actively govern.

An interesting read drawing on class differences and prejudices, but not enough adventure for me, and the romance was weak.

CaramelLunacy Cover is the beautiful "The Princess Out of School" by Edward Robert Hughes in the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia 3mo

I really enjoyed Kemmerer‘s Beauty and the Beast retelling, so when looking for a #RobinHood retelling, when this title popped up, I was intrigued! Though this is quite a loose retelling-& all set against the backdrop of a Maryland suburban high school. A school project thrusts the two narrators- Rob & Meagan- together where they come to confide in each other as they deal with the fallout from their own reputations & family drama. A quick listen!

And he was so thin beneath his rags that it might have been his bones they heard rattling and clanking as they knocked together beneath his skin.

Robin Hood published in 2013 was an interesting read. It was a longer book with not many pictures which made it hard for me to focus. With so many words on the page I was fully enjoying the story rather than some other fairytales.
